ECO 355 - Environmental Economics


The course will examine the economics and scientific basis of environmental issues and the policies that are used in addressing them. The advantages and disadvantages of different regulatory responses will be discussed. We will also discuss methods for valuing the benefits of environmental amenities that do not have an observable value in the marketplace, including the approach used more recently in “ecological economics”. The use of economics in regulating a natural resource (commercial marine fisheries) will be evaluated.

Prerequisite(s): ECO 108 , ECO 202  and ECO 203 .
